to be a two-term george w. bush that took us in a steep recession. >> hey, you are the one with the bush tax cut. >> this can be worked out. everybody knows that. you can raise rates a point or two, that is not going to be end of the world. republicans understand that. let's get through with the fear we have had a couple of weeks of theater and let's get down to serious negotiations. i don't think the republicans want to fight to the death to protect tax breaks for the wealthy. that is not the message they want to send. they tried it during the election and they lost on that. >> eric: if i just interrupt, matt mentioned small businesses. let me read you this tough edtory from investors business daily this past week. they call it return of the tax-and-spend democrats in d.c. of the president's plan it says turn in a massive $1.6 trillion tax increase, most of which will hit small businesses. $600 billion of which the white house hasn't specified but combined it with the no spending cuts at all swept seen the game before. the democrats always pocket the taxes. forget about the spending. martin
who was president at the time, the guy who opened guantanamo, george w. bush, was also saying at the time that we needed to close guantanamo. so everybody sort of agreed and dianne feinstein apparently said, hey, if everybody agrees that that must be done, let's start looking into how we are going to do it. that report requested by senator dianne feinstein from the government accountability office in 2008 has just come out. and it explains the duh is silent that, yeah, people convicted of terrorism offenses are already safely held in american prisons. a lot of them. there are 373 terrorism convicts being held in 98 different facilities that are capable of holding the kind of people who are held at guantanamo, even if there might have to be modifications to those prisons in order to hold them there. in addition, the gao also notes that there are military facilities in the united states capable of holding the guantanamo prisoners as well. with the added benefit that those facilities are only about half full right now. that defense spending bill that congress uses to block presid
, brought to us by george w. bush, and all fairness. >> well, i think the point here is that when people make comparisons, comparisons are relevant because you can run the numbers and say in terms of gdp -- relation to gdp or never, we are not quite as bad as greece or portugal or never, but they are just talking about a few ring keating billions. a trillion word is really unique to the united states. and i think that is what is going to kill us, the absolute numbers. germany can afford to bailout greece. nobody can afford to bailout the united states, and i would agree actually with bill archer that i think he understated. if you take the total debt situation, you're talking about just shy of three-quarters of a million dollars for the -- per american family. so you get a cup of coffee from a waitress in the diner, think of loading three-quarters of a million dollars of debt on to her shoulders for what? for what? does nothing to show for. lou: her children and their children that will be paying a large measure of that. great to have you with us. making spirits bright. and after america

gutierrez serving under president george w. bush. let's talk first about the business community and get the questions right. as i'm saying them i'm reading them. are they willing to absorb tax hike if there's the end all, be all to not go over the fiscal cliff? keeping that in mind, would that wreck havoc in the business community? >> yeah. i can't speak for all business leaders but generally speaking a tax hike, a rate increase is not good for the economy especially at this time. this process is very disappointing. after everything we have been through and after the cam pin and the election, it seems like it's still a same tactical political poker it's always been. and the problem here is the world is watching. and it's almost like our system is being tested. can these guys still -- can these folks, these people, the congress, can the system still solve problems? >> we're -- the system is being tested by the very people who are -- which is odd. >> i know. >> they don't have to test it. they don't have to test the system. they can come to agreement without testing the system or that clo
under george w. bush and adviser to mitt romney. secretary gutierrez, thanks for joining us this morning. >> pleasure, thank you. >> we've heard from republicans about what needs to change, immigration and taxes, abortion. they talk about needing to reach out to voters, but i need you to put some meat on that bone for me. what does reaching out mean? does that mean a softening of a position? does that mean a changing of position, abandonment? what's there? >> well, it needs to start with articulating a position, and, you know, we have been and we need to strengthen our position as the party of individual empowerment, of growth, of prosperity, of individual opportunity, of small business, of less intrusive government, lower taxes, let people keep more of their money so they can continue to grow. >> so you think the problem is that during the election that the -- the points were not articulated properly? i mean, some would say that they heard the points but just disagree. >> there were some things that perhaps aren't consistent with that strategy, and one thing that i am very focused on is
on the spike in our national debt over the fast 12 years. january of 2001, president george w. bush taking office. our national debt stood at $5.7 trillion. by the time he left eight years later, january of 2009, the debt was over 10.6 trillion. as of this week, our debt is $16.3 trillion. a must see fox news sunday tomorrow, we'll have exclusive interview with republican speaker of the house, john boehner, as well as interview with treasury secretary tim geithner who is the president's lead negotiator in the fiscal cliff talks. all tomorrow on fox news sunday, check your local listings for the time and channel in your area. >> heather: wicked weather out west pounding parts of northern california for a second day in a row. the rain soaked area bracing for more stormy weather today. new warnings of potential mudslides and flash floods after yesterday's system washed out streets, brought down power lines, knocking out electricity to thousands. dominic is live for us with the latest. dominic? >> hi there. worst yet to come. this third storm coming through overnight tonight. no one really sur

w. bush got re-elected in 2004 and he and the republicans were prepared to implement the agenda he ran on, elections of consequences. remember that famous soundbyte? obama ran on higher taxes for the wealthy and won. lz, shouldn't he be making the same argument? that is what he ran on. >> absolutely. you know what i find interesting, if you look at the statistics, many of the blue states that supported president obama are some of the richest states in the country. and so not only did you have him defeat romney pretty handedly in the electoral college, but people willing to sacrifice their own money to make sure that president obama, his policies made it to the white house. you know, it was the exact opposite in just the republicans. some of the red states were some of the poorest states in the country. so i think it is very interesting that when you see average american citizens who happen to be making a little bit more money willing to sacrifice for the good of the country, i think that's a good message and something to get behind and stand on. >> lz, our producers are here, can w
of 1990 at andrews air force base where george h.w. bush went in there. we forget now how incredibly overwhelming the deficit story was at that point. you know, you look at that administration. the coming in, just no one thought they could do anything. it's not unlike the conversations we're having now. and they went in, they did the deal, president bush had to shift from read my lips to as only he could put it, read my hips. and it was good for the country, it created a political dynamic that cost president bush the election in 1992, and which we're still living, because that gave us grover norquist, et cetera. >> let's get to grover norquist in a minute, but i do have a question. the gop plan consists of $2.2 trillion in savings over a decade. that includes raging the eligibility age for medicare from 65 to 67. and lowering cost of living increases for social security benefits. they also propose overhauling the tax code to generate $800 billion in new revenue. but without raising taxes on the wealthy. in a letter to the president, leading republicans compared their plan to one ersk
